Chicken Lauriat from Chow King
So fast food may not be deemed as great in the rest of the world. But, in the Philippines it’s becoming a mainstay of city life. It’s not surprising to find huge groups celebrating birthdays, anniversaries or mini conferences in fast food restaurants here.
For the traveler hopping into a fast food restaurant in the Philippines is easy, but the menu’s are huge. Chow King is a favorite of mine as it gives good value and big plates. The service is also quite good.
The photograph above is a Chicken Lauriat. There are lots of Lauriats but this one gave most bang for your peso. Two siomai, rice, noodles with veg (pansit), chicken, prawn crackers and a sesame sweet paste ball thingy (buchi) all for about 109 pesos.
Never had a stomach problem here either!
While it’s not street food, it’s local in the Pinoy sense. And, it’s great value along with being very tasty!
